Dear Friends of PSR Philadelphia,
We hope you were able to get a safe view of the eclipse! It was a magnificent celestial experience and so many people were able to enjoy it thanks to a whole host of scientists!
It is, of course, scientists who track the crossing paths of the sun and moon, scientists who find ways that will make it relatively safe for the many millions of people to view such an amazing scene, and scientists who work at places like the Franklin Institute and Wills Eye Hospital and other generous locations that gave there time and energy to ensuring that free eclipse glasses were available to all and lessons in how to create safe, homemade viewing devices.
